On today’s episode of The 700 Club, Pat Robertson told his millions of followers that there is a “left-wing bias” in the media, and that he’s terrified over gays and lesbians who are now ‘dominating’ society.
“We have given the ground to a small minority,” he said. “You figure, lesbians, one percent of the population; homosexuals, two percent of the population. That’s all. That’s statistically all. But they have dominated — dominated the media, they’ve dominated the cultural shift and they have infiltrated the major universities. It’s just unbelievable what’s being done. A tiny, tiny minority makes a huge difference. The majority — it’s time it wakes up.”
Of course, like usual, there’s no logic behind Robertson’s statements. What does ‘dominated’ mean? Is Robertson upset that the LGBT community can now be on TV without crowds taking their pitchforks to the streets? Is he upset that we’re still insisting on equal rights for all LGBT people? Most likely he’s just stirring the hate pot because that’s what his conservative ‘Christian’ followers want to hear.
